More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

This text brings together readable and engaging essays about important archaeological discoveries in Africa, the first Europeans, the Neanderthals, and the Altamira cave in Spain. Full-color photographs complement the essays by a variety of experts. Narrated in the first person, most of the accounts read well as stories, capturing the excitement of the best moments of science. Timelines contextualize the information given in each essay and render comprehensible the vast scope of time covered. Though the book is imminently readable, it is not likely to hold academic appeal above the secondary level because it lacks bibliographies and annotations, and the gender bias of the title and text is likely to discourage readers in academic institutions. Because of its accessibility, however, the volume is entirely suitable for other audiences: interested members of the public, secondary school teachers, and middle- and high school students. Recommended for public and school libraries, especially those looking to build Spanish-language collections in the sciences.
